    I had reservation in Kona cafe and Grand Floridian cafe by 8:00p.m to see Wishes at 9:00 from those Hotels (Grand Floridian and Polinesian), which of them have the best view ? Do you recommendme to go to the park to see Wishes closer ? I am with 3 kids

    Hi Nei, Both of these resorts give a great view of Wishes, but my favorite is from the Polynesian, especially with 3 children in tow. If your children aren't as interested in the fireworks as you may be then the beach at the Polynesian is a great place for them to watch as well as play in the sand. My recommendation for a more romantic setting would be from the Grand Floridian and the beach there is nice as well but the Polynesian is more kid friendly in my opinion. The Hawaiian theme really adds a different element to the fireworks as far as atmosphere, but this resort has always been my favorite to stay at as well so maybe I am a bit biased when it comes to choosing one over the other because of my memories from childhood that I still reminisce about each time I am there either when watching the fireworks, Electric Water Pageant or just enjoying a meal there. I don't think you can go wrong with either one of these resorts for a wonderful view of Wishes so I wish you a magical time whichever you decide. If you can see Wishes directly from Magic Kingdom as well as from one of the resorts then I would suggest to do both as there is no way to compare the two ways. Each experience is so very unique that I would hope you could experience it from both viewpoints. Best wishes, Brigitta
